Hatfield expands EIA experience in Alberta

Nov 02, 2011

Hatfield Consultants (Hatfield) continues to participate in environmental assessments for major oilsands, coal mining, as well as quarry and sand and gravel operations throughout Alberta. Between August and November 2011, Hatfield was awarded environmental assessment work for nine oilsands projects in the Athabasca oilsands region of Alberta. Working with Hatfield’s Fort McMurray and Calgary offices, the projects have focused on preparation of aquatic resources baselines (fisheries, water quality, and hydrology), environmental impact assessments, and watercourse crossings in compliance with Alberta’s Water Act and associated Codes of Practice.

Hatfield now has a portfolio of 23 environmental assessment projects in various stages of development throughout the province of Alberta.

Hatfield established an office in Fort McMurray in 2003 and in Calgary in 2010 in order to serve our growing client base in Alberta. Hatfield’s Alberta offices are supported by personnel from our head office in Vancouver, B.C.

Our Alberta offices specialize in the following services:

  • Aquatic monitoring and field sampling
  • Fish habitat assessment and population studies
  • Climate and hydrology
  • Wildlife and habitat assessment
  • Alberta Codes of Practice
  • Construction monitoring
  • Air quality monitoring

To ensure quality of work to our clients, we are ISO 9001 certified and maintain rigorous health and safety work standards. Our Alberta offices are well equipped to undertake a variety of field programs and contain specialized equipment to respond to individual project requirements.
